strategy. thank you very much for joining us. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> president obama is quoted as saying, this is a direct quote from the book. this needs to be a plan about how we're going to hand off and get out of afghanistan. then he repeatedly, apparently, pushed his top military advisors for an exit plan and they didn't give it it him. does this in a way summarize the dilemma overall. the in fighting in afghanistan? >> it does. people seem apparently shock that there's infighting in the white house. and i would be disappointed if there wasn't. this is a badly flawed strategy. it has a number of holes in it. not least of which is it's not properly resourced. if you were really serious about standing up a functioning nation state in afghanistan, which is our professed goal, you can't do it with even 100,000 troops. you need far more troops and to be there for a very, very long time. >> that's exactly what general petraeus said and i'll ask our graphic folks to skip ahead to the quote from general petraeus from this book. he apparently said to the president, "you have to rec

for staying with us for the next really busy hour. we are starting tonight with an exclusive report. an exclusive report about politics and retaliation. and a politician who was supposed to be a rising star in the republican party, apparently running on fear. fear of exposure. it starts with the issue of illegal immigration. you can tell by the sheer volume of anti-immigrant politicking in the country right now, the illegal immigration problem must really be exploding. that is true if by exploding you mean that it is down 67%. the pugh hispanic center which is widely considered to be the most authoritative source of numbers has release ad new report saying in the last decade, the number illegal immigrants sgroogs the united states has dropped by two-thirds. so the sudden up take in yelling about illegal immigration, blaming immigrants for everything from obama being elected to swine flu to kidnapping the lindenberg baby, that's not happening because illegal immigration is getting worse. it is actually getting better. the up take in immigration stuff is not really about immigration a
